2014 Lunar Horse Coins: 1oz Silver Niue Island Coin, 1oz & 1/2oz Silver Palau Coins

Following on from my previous 2014 Lunar Horse coverage I saw these coins pop up for pre-order via ebay, they are released over September / October and appear to be commissioned coins (so there may be no earlier years produced  for the same series) for a German coin dealer: www.schatzkammer-nrw.de

Hmmm... not impressed with these coins at all. Actually, I think the first coin would have been a very beautiful coin if not for that silly insert. It looks childish... totally ruined the coin for me. What were they thinking?

I agree, not particularly impressed with the designs (the 1oz Palau coin is the pick of the 3 IMO). Given the popularity of lunar series coins it seems an open invitation for dealers to start pumping out commissioned coins as quickly as possible to capitalise on the lunar market.
